The Trustees present will also conduct a rodeo review board meeting at the conclusion of every rodeo, but no sooner than thirty (30) minutes after the conclusion of all events.
The Trustee Chairperson or a Vice-Chairperson will chair these meetings. If the Chairperson or Vice-Chairperson is not present, an election by the Trustees present shall designate a Chairperson of the Trustees present for that rodeo only.
If the Hosting Association Trustee believes any fines assessed by the Rodeo Review Board (RRB) to be the result of an error, action, or omission by an IGRA Certified Official, the Trustee may request that the RRB waive said fine(s). The Trustees present at the RRB Meeting shall determine whether or not to waive the fine(s) before the vote to approve the rodeo. Regardless of the findings, the Trustee completing the Checklist will have a letter sent to the Chairperson of the Certified Official regarding the areas of concern.
Business Conducted at the Rodeo Review Board shall include:
NOTE: Veterinarian non-compliance will result in the Rodeo Host Association/Chapter being fined $1,500 for the entire rodeo. A second (2nd) consecutive rodeo violation will result in the Rodeo Host Association/Chapter being fined $3,000 for the entire rodeo and be suspended from hosting a sanctioned IGRA rodeo the next year.
The fines imposed by the RRB do not affect the sanctioning of a rodeo. Fines are imposed only to ensure future compliance with International Rodeo Rules and Guidelines. Fines are due to be paid to the IGRA Treasurer within thirty (30) days of the postmarked date on the notification letter.
In the case that any portion of Rule XVII (Parade & Grand Entry) is not followed, the Host Association will be fined only if Trustees conclude that no effort whatsoever has been made to conform to this Rule.
For the IGRA Finals Rodeo, each arena variance, including, but not limited to chutes and roping boxes, shall incur a $250.00 fine.
Additional fines may be levied by the withholding of post-rodeo sponsorship money, pending a determination by the IGRA Board of Directors during review of rodeo compliance.
